MyPicture

Graduating from AI Miami International University of Art & Design with a BFA in Graphic Design I have ventured out into the Graphic Design industry and developed may skills to meet the desires of the companies I have worked with over the years. Some of these skills include, but are not limited to Branding, Print, and Illustration. Using these skills I have completed many projects that ultimately reflected the organizations I have worked with over the years. Some of these designs can still be seen today in all form of media including web, print, and even full size public adverts. While working with many diverse organizations I have grown as a self motivated employee; able to maintain complex schedules and deadlines, working with people all over the world, and be a supportive them member.

After developing my skills for many years in Florida, I decided to take a chance and with my husband we moved to Colorado. My first step here in CO was to develop some need business skills. I felt that I lacked a vision on the business side of things and I knew to complete my pallet of skills and abilities I need to take some needed action. With that I earned an MBA specializing in Environmental & Social Sustainability from Colorado Technical University.

Now that I have rounded out my skills, I am looking to find a progress and enthusiastic organization where I and they can work together with my abilities to design amazing graphics and Illustration. I hope to be meeting with some amazing employers here in the Greater Denver, CO area, or telecommute companies. Together lets make some magic.
